. lots of pushes to take that up to $9, as president obama has talked about. the average starbucks barista, according to glassdoor website, makes $8.78 an hour. >> well, that's a little misleading, but i'll come back to that. you know, i think the minimum wage issue is a double-edged sword. and what i would not want to see is the minimum wage go up and as a result of that, employers starting to hire less people or cutting people's hours. and you have to be very careful of the unintended consequences. on balance, i am a supporter of the minimum wage going up, but i think we've got to be very, very careful and be careful what we wish for, because some employers, and it could be a lot of them, will be scared away from hiring new people or creating incremental hours for part-time people as a result of that wage going up. so you've got to be very careful and this has to be very thought out. and i would say, in terms of the health care law, that's going to go into effect, there are significant unintended consequences that was not thought out as much as it should have, that will significa
